West Junior A Football Final:
Fr. Caseys 2-04 Newcastle West 0-07
Fr. Caseys are the 2017 West Junior A football champions for the first time since 1962 after defeating local rivals Newcastle West in a nail biting encounter in Feenagh last Sunday evening. Playing with the strong breeze, Fr. Caseys lead by 1-04 to 0-03 at half time with a brilliant goal coming from Jamie O’Connor mid-way through the half. Newcastle West reduced the margin to a single point with 10 minutes remaining but then up popped Pa O’Connor to score a goal and seal the encounter. The cup was presented to captain Maurice O’Connor and the man of the match award went to midfielder Thomas Cahill. Well done to all involved including manager Seamus McNamara and selectors Gerard O’Connor and James Collins on this fantastic achievement. A more detailed match report will follow next week once the celebrations have ended.
